Republic of Korea (South)

South Korea, located on the southern tip of the Korean peninsula, has one of the highest population densities and is one of the most ethnically homogenous populations in the world. Based on traditional foods and preparation techniques, the typical South Korean meal includes steamed rice, soup, and three to four side dishes. Spicy and robust flavors are characteristic of Korean cuisine, which includes red chili paste, fermented soybean paste, soy sauce, and garlic. Korean specialties include bulgogi (thinly sliced beef marinated and cooked on a grill), and bibimbap (rice topped with vegetables, beef, egg, and chili pepper paste). Kimchi, probably one of the best known Korean foods, consists of vegetables such as cabbage, radish, or cucumber fermented in a highly seasoned and often spicy brine.
